Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems
A vision for the future
Imagine where you could land with a degree from Pace. Can you see yourself 10 years from now—a computer analyst for Bloomberg? An FBI agent focused on computer security? Or a web designer for the next big start-up?
The Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, named after Pace alumnus and former chairman and CEO of Verizon, Ivan G. Seidenberg, offers a broad spectrum of courses ranging from web technologies and game programming to data mining and project management. Our program is also one of only a few nationwide that focuses on pattern recognition, security, and robotics. Recently a time of students developed 3-D vision for the robot "Alexandra" that may one day help save lives in hospital and military settings. That's just one of the ways Pace students are seeing things in a new light.
Seidenberg's 90 full- and part-time educators are leaders in their fields. Take Susan M. Merritt, PhD, who received the Martin Luther King Jr. Excellence in Social Justice Award; or Christelle Scharff, PhD, who won an IBM Smarter Planet Faculty Innovation Award for her work in developing mobile applications to promote social change in Africa; or Jean Coppola, PhD, who is pioneering research in gerontechnology and inspiring students in intergenerational computing.
The majority of Seidenberg students participate in Pace's internship program, one of the largest in the New York metropolitan area. Employers include IBM, Bloomberg, Link Technologies, Morgan Stanley, PepsiCo, and Time Warner Cable, to name a few.
